Under the Maine Emergency Management Agency (MEMA) umbrella, the Department of Economic & Community Development (DECD) is the lead state agency for economic recovery efforts following a major event such as the storm that arrived October 29th. In order to begin that effort and to seek resources MEMA must assess the damage and prepare documentation to submit to FEMA all within 30 days.

Because of our great working relationship with both MEMA and DECD they have asked for our help in reaching the business community. In order to make sure they capture as much information as possible they are asking that you review this attachment, it is a brief survey. If you could complete it and e-mail it back to the Department of Economic & Community Development, at this address, business.answers@maine.gov by Thursday 11/9 at 10 am, it would be greatly appreciated.  

This form is asking for an estimate of uninsured losses as a direct result of the storm and sustained power outage. The goal is for businesses to be able to access the Small Business Administration’s federal resources to cover those uninsured losses.
